I cannot say anything bad about this hotel. It was clean, the staff were amazing, location is prime, and its very modern. The room was perfect, I was upgraded to the executive room and had free internet, which worked fantastic. The location is a stones throw away from the train station, a short walk to the harbor where you can...

The best thing about this hotel is its location! It's right next to the railway station, very handy for relatives from different parts of Europe to meet. I stayed here for two nights in November 2013 with my sisters and mother and was very happy with my experience. The staff was friendly enough, the room a good size and clean...

One of the key benefits of the Holiday Inn Helsinki City Centre is the location. It is just by the main train station. When arriving by air you can take the airport bus for 6.30 Euro for about 30 min and then walk for 3 minutes to the hotel. The other good thing about the location is that is it...

The quality of service at this hotel does not match the price. Services such as breakfast were not included in normal rate, common areas were dirty, and requests for off hours use of sauna and late check out were flatly denied by the staff. It is obvious that this hotel does not value individual guest satisfaction. With so many good...

To start with this hotel is prime location right next to the main train station and the airport bus. Hundreds of restaurants and bars and shops around the corner and most sightseeing places within 10min walk. The rooms were extremely clean and fresh with the most comfortable bed ever. Had such an amazing night sleep and so quiet to. The...

Stayed 3 nights on business. Good room, very good sound insulation, decent bathroom. Breakfast a nice buffet also. Decent small gym in the basement. The key card system has finally been upgraded to a proximity swipe type one, works similarly in the lifts too. Well done for that improvement. Very convenient location by the main Helsinki railway station.

I loved the location of this hotel. It was steps from the Finnair bus stop to and from the airport, which was great for us. We stayed in Helsinki a night and then flew to Ivalo the next day. Then two days later we came back to Helsinki for a night before flying home. So in 4 days we made...

Arrived here from St. Petersburg by Allegro train at 830am, literally one-minute from the train station. And 30 seconds walk to Airport Bus Stop. 3-minute walk to the mall and 10-minute walk to the quay. Great location. Reasoned with the staff that I will be checking out by 530am next day, and showed my IHG Platinum card, was told to...

Absolutely zero surprises here, everything as expected. Being situated almost in the central railway and bus station, the location is as central as you can get it. You can get to most Helsinki points of interest by foot. Noise insulation was good, so no worries losing sleep. Rooms clean, nice and large enough. Staff friendly (not that we were demanding...
